Ryan RPVs


On the way to Southeast Asia from Davis-Monthan AFB, AZ carrying 147S drones.
The later lower level drones were grey in color, the earlier ones were black.


The follow-on model to the 147 was the 154, but it never got past test stage....
This aircraft is probably 65-979



Recently there was alot of press about Predators firing missiles, well that all well and good....
but the Ryans were doing it back in 1972


Here is the Shrike missile test which was done at Hill AFB, UT in 1972


Various versions of the 147 drone, clockwise from left:
147J, H, G, NX
